"An instant classic" - Ralph McLean (BBC Radio Ulster)

"Probably the best thing Danny has ever done" - Jim Meredith (BBC Radio Ulster)

"sounds as if it was made in Stax Studios by a collective of Nashville’s finest Country musicians This is Danny and the Champions fourth album and unquestionably their finest in a long lineage that dates back to Grand Drive’s debut in 1997- No Depression

"Album of the year?  Too early to say. Contender? Definitely." - FATEA Magazine

"timeless" - Pennyblackmusic

“there’s always been a sense of a tasteful restraint to the studio albums but unleashed on stage with their raspy vocals and heartland rock and soul, they’re like a power station on steroids.”


“This is a proper old school live album, makes you want to go to a gig”


“songs like This Is Not a Love Song and and Stay True which come at you one after the other; are destined to make ‘new fans’ wonder why these kids aren’t topping the bill at Glastonbury with their magic formula and bittersweet songs.”
